We know what you're thinking: TGIS! Believe us, we're right there with you. But before we fully embrace the weekend and make the most of our two-day vacay, here's a look at the crème de la crème of this week's headlines. From an update on the locale of the very-much-anticipated The Row flagship store in L.A. to a look at where the A-list will be this week to celebrate the Emmys, take a peek at the stories you should know!

If the whole Uber/Lyft/Sidecar/Taxi controversy had you gasping for air and waiting on the edge of your seat for the final outcome, you can now officially breathe again. Uber (along with its many peers) isn't going anywhere. California state regulators voted unanimously to create rules for the companies that use smartphones in lieu of a hail sign to connect riders with drivers. (LAist)

There may be a long list of other places people can find drugs these days, but this week, one lawmaker is cracking down on the prescription pills sold in the "Health and Beauty" section on Craigslist. He says he wants to help end the "needless deaths attributed to prescription drug overdoses," and hopes the website will join him. (L.A. Weekly)

Olsen fans, rejoice! The Row's L.A. flagship store is taking over John Frieda's recently vacated 3,600-square-foot space on Melrose Place. Situated alongside luxe neighbors Equipment and Isabel Marant, this is one store we CANNOT wait to see! (Racked L.A.)

In an effort to boost financial aid for undergraduates, the UCs have launched an online campaign that has celebrities, politicians, students, and faculty banding together for a common cause. Jamie Foxx, Beach Boys member Mike Love, and Governor Brown are just a few of the elite members participating in this fundraising effort. (L.A. Times)
